Part Time Punks
Hailed for pioneering post-punk, indie-dance music – a sound often reflected by today’s contemporaries, Los Angeles’ MOVING UNITS, now ten years into their career, are set to release a new LP. From the push and pull that ensues during an unspoken attraction, to the dynamic of living in Los Angeles - a city of symbolism and paraphernalia of glamour, versus the desperation and disillusionment of the people who aspire to such entrapments…tension is everywhere. These are their rhythms.
Blouse is based out of a 6,000 square-foot warehouse in North Portland. The project started in the summer of 2010, after Los Angeles native Charlie Hilton met Patrick Adams in art school. They made a few home recordings and soon began spending nights at the warehouse recording with Jacob Portrait (Producer of Mint Chicks, Dandy Warhols, Starfucker). Having played music since their teens, the three found that there was something inexplicable in their coming together. After posting two demo tracks to Bandcamp's website, the group was picked up by Captured Tracks out of Brooklyn, NY. A 7" single of Into Black was released at the end of March '11 by Captured Tracks. Sub Pop Records will be releasing the second single for Shadow on May 31st.
FEATHERS is a dreamy electronic pop band from Austin, TX. With pulsing synths and siren-sung harmonies, Feathers' goth-hued electro pulsates with echoes of New Order, The Cure and Depeche Mode. Or, as The Guardian describes the band's debut LP from earlier this spring: “'Land Of The Innocent's' dystopian future-world aesthetic with a pop sensibility and rhythms tough enough to pass muster in the realm of the industrial… makes you wonder why there hasn't been such an all-female group before."
SOME EMBER are a dark lush landscape of brooding, swirling post punk cold wave minimalism, all pulsing muted synths, spare percussion, shimmery atmospheres, thick, crumbling industrial swells, hushed melancholic melodies, all blurred into a murky, washed out dirge pop dreamscape. These are the sounds of low-life, black celebration and disintegration.
